Sashiko, the ancient Japanese needlework practice, is surging in popularity thanks to its mindfulness and beautiful simplicity. It is wonderful for people who find cross stitch and embroidery challenging to the eye or hand but is a great addition to any needle fan’s repertoire. The key difference is the method – the needle is ‘weaved’ into the fabric, then the fabric is pulled to complete several stitches at once.
The photograph here is a traditional Sashiko pattern completed by your instructor, Andrea Verley. For this beginner class, focused on technique and getting familiar with the art form, we will provide a smaller, straight grid pattern and work on our flow and movement. We will also provide a curved pattern for you to practice with if you are able to master and complete the grid within class time. You’ll take home your Sashiko fabric, needle and thread.
Class will last 90-minutes but all are welcome to continue stitching in our social circle living room.
Everything you will need will be provided in this class – please feel free to bring your favorite beverage and a spirit of adventure!
